    Amnesty International image:
Darfur, child with headscarfe. [1] - Shootings, attacks on drivers and thefts of contracted trucks carrying critically needed food aid in Sudan’s war-ravaged western Darfur region are seriously threatening the ability of the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) to assist millions of people at a time when needs are increasing daily, the agency said today. “The security situation is so bad that many drivers are now refusing to move through sections of the road corridors to the three Darfur states,” WFP country director Ramiro Lopes da Silva said of the region.
